With the year-end holidays fast approaching, Finolhu Baa Atoll Maldives has confirmed its exciting line-up for the festive season.

Guests spending their festive holidays at the luxury Maldives resort are in for a treat of fun-filled experiences and vibrant entertainment designed to thrill everyone from couples and families to groups of friends.

The seasonal activities begin on December 21 with cocktails on the beach and a toast to the lively Festive Tree Lighting, followed by Finolhu’s signature LobsterFest at Crab Shack. The anticipation begins to build on December 24 with a Festive Cocktail Party and Kid & Teens Fashion Show followed by a Festive Night Feast at Beach Kitchen. On December 25, enjoy a special Festive Day Lunch with family and loved ones in the leadup to the much-awaited enchanting spectacle of Santa’s Arrival Parade in the late afternoon. Celebrations continue on December 26 with a not-to-be-missed Festive Caviar Night, showcasing fine caviar paired with luxurious Champagnes selected by Finolhu’s sommelier.

Finolhu has designed fun-filled programmes throughout the holiday season, where every day offers exciting activities for both the young and young-at-heart, from festive cooking, baking and art classes to a friendly fishing competition for teens. The exciting line-up of kids’ activities include a Bubble Pool Fun Party, a thrilling Pirate Cruise, and exploring the underwater world snorkelling with the Marine Biologist, while families are invited to engage in friendly competition with the Family Fun Challenge on the beach or for an afternoon of Aqua Fun at the Main Pool on New Year’s Eve.

The vibrant build-up to New Year gets underway on December 31 with a New Year’s Eve Cocktail Party on Finolhu’s beautiful sandbank, followed by a lavish New Year’s Eve Dinner. Guests will be treated to a spectacular evening of thrilling entertainment of tribal fire dances, traditional Maldivian Boduberu performances, live music, colourful aerial hoop acts, and magical LED shows leading up to a champagne toast to the New Year with an unforgettable countdown under the stars.

Start the morning after with Finolhu’s New Year’s Day Brunch and follow with a selection of friendly water polo, futsal matches and beach soccer games lined up throughout the week, or take the holistic route by signing up for wellness programmes by visiting practitioner Karen Gay, who will be leading a diverse schedule of Yoga, Pilates, Personal Reiki and Elemental Movement classes.

Guests are invited to indulge in a special Orthodox Eve Festive Night on January 6 at Beach Kitchen, while festivities continue the next day with Finolhu’s first White Party of 2022 on January 7, where fire dance performances and DJ sessions set the tone for an unforgettable evening at Crab Shack.

Seaside Finolhu

Seaside Finolhu Resort Maldives sand bank

Best Experience:    Couples, Family, Beaches, Activities, Nightlife

Located in the UNESCO world biosphere of Baa Atoll, Finolhu came about as a reaction to the more familiar Maldives island. One of the newest resorts in the Maldives, Finolhu was born out of a desire to bring a fresh wave to the uninhabited island experience. Forget the images of the quiet Maldives paradise: here, fiery dancers, acrobats, world-famous DJs and top-class barmen keep the guests on tiptoe (starting from their bed). The retro atmosphere is the resort's main inspiring force that puts a fun stay at the heart of everything it offers. This cool island playground shakes things up with a fun and fresh spin on Maldivian luxury. The island boasts the longest (1.8 km) sandbank of all the famous Maldivian resort islands - expect to spend a lot of time explorering it. A long beach should not disappoint you either; beach club with retro cinema and old-school arcade; spa with fitness centre and beach gym; tennis courts; watersports; four restaurants; old-school tuck shop. In rooms: TV, iPod dock, DVD player, desk, air-conditioning, minibar, black-out curtain, Neal's Yard Remedies bath products. Read Full Review...
